I have yet to have the formal dx of CMT however my emg tests show zero conduction on some nerves and very slowing on others both arms and legs. I have noticed that on some days I have energy and other days, it is a struggle to get through the day because of fatigue, weakness. I have severe neuropathy in feet and take medication daily for pain control.. I have noticed now that repetitive motions such as holding a car wash hose and washing the car will affect me by severe weakness in that arm and an inability to hold a pen or fork for hours afterwards. My mother has been dx with CMT by blood testing.. Will I have to undergo muscle or nerve biopsy to have this testing completed or is the blood testing sufficient, and are these symptoms typical of CMT or worse??
